10:46 am
expansion of the clean up area and it was larger than originally looked at it needs to be add to the clear up area one of the things we've done as well, not recorded in here we've done an eco management and it can say that there is not a need we see to clean up the led that is underwater at this point at that time, it is unavailable to the receptor terrors we'll not have to do additional clean up but maybe some further investigations i want to do to acknowledge the efforts off our staff on that project sponsor who is here today and really put in a lot of work to bring this along and keep it on schedule and moving forward so with that,

podium (laughter). >> sorry. >> thank you barbara hail for power i'm happy to be presenting the good work of a group of folks at the puc together with the city attorney this is our new proposed street light proposal practice writing program that will generate revenue for us and as i say it represents the good work of folks from you power and folks from real estate and the assistance of joanne from the city attorney's office in item we're asking firing approval the master license agreement agreement would permit the wireless carries to mount equipment on our poles and link to our circuits and allow us to
10:55 am
execute those master license agreement distributed antenna systems program would conflict with our curiosity street light policy that doesn't allow us to use poles for profit entities the public works codes lays out through the dpw the issuance of personal wireless site permits here in the city and that codes lace out sets the responsibility for sequa compliance, for prove that a facilities as proposed will operate in compliance with public health compliance standards and for us it permits the applicant to secure the owners permission for the poles
10:56 am
use we're the owner that's our role within the cities regulatory treasure story distributed antenna systems and wireless facilities what is that we're physically talking about in the photo here as you can see a typical street light pole on the left and what is the proposed are attachments you see on the right with the circles around p them the antenna and supporting equipment and another example some of the equipment is mounted lower on the pole and again, this is version has the antenna lower on the pole and mount to some separation from the pole itself so that's just to give you a flavor for the kinds of things
10:57 am
you might be seeing on the poles if the agreement moves o move forward but we're proposing a pole license fee that's a real estate license of $4,000 per year with a 4 thousand annual escalation we want a 12 year term for the operation of the facilities for about 10 years and about 2 years worth of planning and permit and design before the installation is operating we're also requiring under this master license agreement for strands of fiber for city use they're required to provide details and procedures and fees for approval and installation a 4 hundred and 40 there's fee and a 9 hundred there's fee for the engineering staff to perform the
10:58 am
reviews it is a styled review for the use of a standard tap everyday steel pole so one master agreement they'll subsequently identify the poles and all the power for the facilities will be provide as r by us. >> our scope of refugee went over quickly is summarized on this slide it is important for you to be consulting with the planning department regarding the aesthetics that's their role and nothing will actually move forward until we've conformed the sequa compliance program provides a number of benefits both for the city and specifically for power for the city it is the facilities that are being proposed to be installed will enhance the
10:59 am
wireless coverage and mediating meet the i have no speaker cards demands for the speed and provides for expansion for the city with the four strands for city department use and captains the overlay fiber for the overall public use specifically for power it will the fees i've distributed for obvious use of pole are expected to generate a million dollars per year in addition revenue with that, i'm happy to take questions or comments. >> questions. >> i look for your support. >> a couple of questions. the term is 12 years >> correct. >> and what happens after the 12 years. >> after the 12 years the devices will be removed unless the carry wishes to are you new the license. >> and the agreement didn't
11:00 am
have any specific renewal provisions. >> no, i don't believe so no. >> that's whatever we decide in 12 years in terms of follow-up. >> i'll anticipate the staff will bring it back consistent with the real estate guidelines at that time. >> i notice there's review of electrical capability i didn't see any specific consideration of radio frequency interference and especially, as we get into you know new led and lights that use some of that technology and either or interference with them or us how is that dealt with. >> so i guess there's two issues one issue with respect to radio frequency is addressed by the public health
